Joel Kahn's Recommendations
First time home buyer with zero experience
First time home buyer with zero experience in the home market. Joel was fantastic at showing us the ins and outs of home buying and eventually helping us find our first home! Strongly recommended
Joel was initially the listing agent
Joel was initially the listing agent for the house that we bought. After meeting him and starting through the process (and knowing that we should have our own agent) we truly felt that he was fair, realistic and did a good job balancing both ours and the sellers' best interests. So, we just used him for the whole buying process. He has construction knowledge, knows the area, knows the process, was absolutely professional as well as down-to-earth, and very easy to ask questions to. He was always prompt getting back to us, even when he was out of the country! We then had him sell our house, which he did a wonderful job with. He would make suggestions, but was never, ever pushy. We think that he has the trifecta: construction experience & understanding, understanding of the real estate process, and finesse with people! It was a really good experience all the way around, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
It’s a jungle out there buying a home,
It's a jungle out there buying a home, navigating the process, and working the deal. Call Joel for the professional advantage you want and the service you need. We loved the experience and knowledge he brought. Excellent service -Brent and Sandra Barkett New Albany First time home owners!
Joel is truly professional
Joel is truly professional in his field of real estate. I had the pleasure of working with Joel in both selling and purchasing my homes. I would never look anywhere else for a realtor, as Joe was a man of his word. Whenever I had a question, Joel was always prompt in his answers, and consistently made sure he knew exactly what I wanted when looking for my new home. His advice was always honest, his time was well spent with me, and his quick responses were well appreciated. I feel I have a true, valued friend! Thank you Joel!
Joel was absolutely the best realtor I could have asked for
Joel was absolutely the best realtor I could have asked for. Aside from being ultra friendly, polite and professional he always made it seem as if I was his utmost priority. Never made me feel as if I was being a bother or that I was being a pest...even when I would call him several times in a day. He was always readily available regardless of day of week or time of day. And above all else he was very knowledgeable and always listened to me an my needs. He listened to me when I communicated what I wanted in my new home and he knew exactly where to go to fill those needs. He knows the area, he knows the market and was always willing to go the extra mile to ensure I felt comfortable with everything. He helped me sell my old home and held my hand as we searched for and bought my next. He was fantastic. If you want a realtor who knows Columbus, knows the market and is willing to give you the level of care and attention that makes you feel like your his #1 "million dollar" buyer then Joel is the one you want to work with.
Joel has provided us with the best real estate buying experience we have ever seen
Joel has provided us with the best real estate buying experience we have ever seen. His attention to detail, responsiveness, and "can do" attitude is exactly what is needed, during the buying (and selling) process. And, his knowledge and experience is tremendously helpful. He made the process easy, and less time consuming. We give him our highest recommendation!
We spent a little over a year looking for a home
We spent a little over a year looking for a home. We just about gave up when he found it. Our dream home. It had everything that we were looking for. What is great about Joel was how patient he was. He was confident throughout that he would find it and he did. He called to check in every few weeks but responded immediately when I wanted to see a home. His knowledge was great even when I wasn't so sure he was always right. He had a whole list of people to recommend for small remodeling jobs. He did not pressure or bug us at anytime. I would work with him anytime and would recommend him. I like to think of Joel as my friend now that we have closed. He is amazing.
I had a wonderful experience working with Joel
I had a wonderful experience working with Joel. He has knowledge in the real estate market as well as the issues that can arise from the age of the homes. I would gladly recommend Joel as a realtor to any of my friends and family.
Joel was an amazing realtor!
Joel was an amazing realtor! As first time home buyers, we had no clue what we were doing and Joel guided us through the process and made it such an easy and fun experience! He was always available to answer questions and flexible with when to meet to view properties. He explained the entire contract thoroughly when we were submitting our offer. I would without a doubt recommend Joel!
I was extremely impressed with Joel’s knowledge
I was extremely impressed with Joel's knowledge of what it takes to sell a home in today's market. He came into the condo and was able to tell me exactly what I needed to do, room by room, in order to set my home apart from the others on the market. We discussed how much I would like to net from the sale of the property, and what our strategy needed to be to achieve it. And he was absolutely right on with his numbers. The condo was only on the market 9 days and I had an offer in my hands.
Joel is fantastic
Joel is fantastic. He made the buyer process simple and easy to understand and as first time home buyer this was extremely helpful. We looked at a variety of different homes and condo's in various locations and Joel's insight was spot on and always welcomed. I highly recommend working with Joel if looking for a home in central Ohio
Joel listened to our needs and desires and understood very quickly…
Joel listened to our needs and desires and understood very quickly what we were looking for. As a result we did not waste much time finding the ideal house. He gave honest and direct answers to all our queries while remaining unfailingly courteous and efficient. The result was a sale that proceeded smoothly and which everyone felt was fair. We walked away feeling like we had made a new friend.
My wife and I were looking to purchase our first home
My wife and I were looking to purchase our first home and Joel was recommended to us by a close family member. We could not have been more pleased with his expertise and assistance throughout this process. As first time home buyers, we had a LOT of questions; something that Joel always treated with respect while addressing each of them. The biggest thing that stands out is the fact that he never tried to sell us on a home that we did not like, simply to make a quick sale. Along with Joel's expertise in viewing and finding great houses, he was incredibly responsive via numerous communication channels. We HIGHLY recommend Joel to anyone looking to purchase their next home!! We will be working with him on home #2, whenever that may be!
Joel was excellent to deal with
Joel was excellent to deal with - from helping us find our new home and showing several - to listing our former home (and having it sold within 24 hours of listing for cash with a closing in 10 days of listing); Joel was in contact every step of the way and an invaluable resource. Would strongly recommend him for anyone looking to buy/sell a home - considerable insight in the process and was a pleasure to deal with.
Joel made our search easy and fun
Joel was one of the first people I was introduced to when I moved to Columbus. I was being relocated by my company and my wife was finishing out her position back in our home town. Joel made our search easy and fun. He accomodated our crazy schedule (my wife could only make it in at certain times and go view houses, I would see them after the fact in most cases due to being very busy with work). Joel was masterful in his guidance towards area's and homes that really suited our needs and wants. He was always available to ask questions, give referrals, or help in any situation that we found ourselves in. If you need a real estate agent with an incomperable knowledge of the area, unwaivering work ethic and all around good guy, then Joel Kahn is your man.
I have worked with Joel on 4 real estate transactions
I have worked with Joel on 4 real estate transactions. There is no one else I would ever use. His experience as a builder, in addition to his real estate experience, gives him the ability to truly understand any situation or problem, and give excellent advice and direction.
I don’t know where to begin
I don't know where to begin. Joel is greatly experienced in home construction & real estate. His honestly and personality are what really we valued. He also has was able to get us a remarkable deal on the home of our dreams. Here are two strong votes for Joel Kahn!
My husband and I have purchased 6 homes and Joel is the best agent we have ever had.
My husband and I have purchased 6 homes and Joel is the best agent we have ever had. He is very respectful of our time and we never felt any pressure from him whatsoever. He was very knowledgable when we ask questions, and if he didn't know he found out immediately and let us know. His communication skills are excellent. He is very trustworthy and we will recommend him to any of our friends and family who are looking for a very professional agent.
We just bought our first house and Joel was our agent
We just bought our first house and Joel was our agent. We were inexperienced when it came to real estate, but Joel was extremely helpful in walking us through all of the various processes and terminology. He is knowledgeable, patient, forthright, and was always available when we needed him. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who is looking for a home in Columbus.
I had the pleasure of working with Joel Kahn
I had the pleasure of working with Joel Kahn for the purchase of my home. I am familiar with Joel's extensive expertise and background of every detail that has to do with houses from planning, to building, to buying, to remodeling, to selling, and more. Because of this I knew I would use Joel as my Realtor even before I decided to start looking for a house. I had high expectations and also a great sense of ease knowing Joel would always have my best interests in mind and at the same time advise me honestly and effectively through the process of reviewing homes, deciding on a house, and negotiating the purchase. Joel exceeded my expectations from start to finish and I freely recommend him to my friends and family because I know they'll have the same experience I did.
Joel and I began my long journey for a home of my own in 2012
Joel and I began my long journey for a home of my own in 2012. I will not go into the details of the delays that were encountered (due to issues on my part) However, Joel "stuck" with me without being what is considered "pushy". Finally, in June 2014 I was able to close on a home. Without Joel's knowledge, calmness, and most of all his expertise in real estate matters I would have come apart during the final days that lead up to closing. Joel is calm and efficient, knowledgeable, thoughtful with his most important attribute being he can get the job done, thoroughly and efficiently. Hats off to anyone who can work under pressure and still achieve - if you are looking for those attributes in realtor hire Joel.
Joel was great to work with
Joel was great to work with. He's professional and pragmatic (and an all-around good guy). In my situation, I also needed to complete significant work to prepare my mother's home for sale. Joel has great contacts who did a wonderful job with the work. Joel assisted in the management of these contractors and helped me make quick and smart decisions (without pressure) which resulted in a quick sale. He understood my needs and delivered.
Joel is both a realtor and home builder
Joel is both a realtor and home builder so he has a unique ability to advise clients in the appropriate property and price. His follow up is immediate and his execution is first rate. I highly recommend Joel to anyone desiring outstanding service.
I would highly recommend Joel Kahn!
I would highly recommend Joel Kahn! He was strategic, client-centered, and highly motivated to meet our needs. Joel exceeded our expectations (and we have exceptionally high expectations!). We were thrilled to have had the privilege to work with Joel.
We met Joel at an open house and immediately knew he was the right realtor for us
We met Joel at an open house and immediately knew he was the right realtor for us. From the first meeting we had at our house to the 2 closings Joel always acted professional and kept our best interests in mind. Constant communication is key when purchasing or selling real estate and there wasnt a time I couldnt get a hold of Joel. Ive already referred him to 3 families and will continue to do so. Thank you Joel for everything!!
Joel is amazing!
Joel is amazing! Being a first time home buyer, I had A LOT of questions. He would always respond in a timely, professional, and kind manner. He even went as far as listing the steps of each process for me so I wouldn't be nervous. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the entire buying process, and we give Joel all of the credit. I will be recommending him to all of my family and friends!
We just sold our second home with Joel and once again had the best experience
We just sold our second home with Joel and once again had the best experience. From the moment he listed it on September 1st to the closing date of October 16th, he was responsive, professional, and wonderful to work with. He goes above and beyond my expectations for a realtor and I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home in Central Ohio area.
I will definitely use Joel as my realtor the next time I buy/sell a home.
At each house we looked at, Joel walked in and immediately pointed out problem areas, potential problem areas, good points of the home, etc. He was able to provide the technical aspect that I know nothing about. In a couple of the homes, pointed out some very serious problem areas that I would never have noticed, and had I purchased the home, would have had a real problem on my hands. Joel also was able to ask me questions about what I liked or disliked in such a way that he could determine what I really wanted and needed. He then was able to filter the list of available houses so that we only looked at homes that fit my preferences. I will definitely use Joel as my realtor the next time I buy/sell a home. Would use no one else.
Joel was very helpful in finding a condo in a specific area in a very tight market
Joel was very helpful in finding a condo in a specific area in a very tight market for my elderly parents. He communicated with us multiple times a day to stay on top of what was available. Had he not done this, we would have lost out. He was patient with them listening to their needs as well as mine as the daughter. He was professional and kind. He appears to truly love what he does- or he wouldn't care so much. He also helped us find additional services to help with this big transition. Thanks!
The best realtor we’ve ever worked with
The best realtor we’ve ever worked with. Very professional and had a great team to help us out on the selling and buying side of things for both of our houses! I highly would recommend Joel and his team to anyone looking for a realtor. He sold our house within 48 hours of us listing it on the market
We had a great experience with Joel!
We had a great experience with Joel! This was my first experience buying a house and I am so thankful we chose Joel to help us. He was very patient, honest, quick to respond and his background in construction helped tremendously when looking at the older homes we were interested in. He made the whole process fun rather than stressful and always kept our best interests at heart. I would highly recommend Joel to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Thank you Joel!
I met Joel by chance
I met Joel by chance: a friend recommended a house, and Joel happened to be the selling agent. I didn't like the house, and Joel listened carefully to my reasons. Within a couple of days he sent details of another house that (he thought) corresponded to what I had described.... and I just bought that house. Joel provided superb support throughout the process, answering all my (many) questions -- and in the few cases where he felt unqualified to answer himself (e.g. some legal issues), he did not bluff: instead he put me in touch with someone who could provide answers. I would work with him again, and with no one else.
Very professional! Great knowledge of area. Tuned into what I was looking for in a house or condo. Made necessary phone calls as needed. Great guy to work with. Thanks Joel. I appreciate you!
Joel was incredible
Joel was incredible. He was completely transparent with my wife and I about every aspect of the home buying process. He was able to provide information in a way that made my wife and I feel informed and not rushed.
We actually found Joel on Zillow
We actually found Joel on Zillow while calling to inquire about a home he was a listing agent for. What an unexpected BLESSING that was! Joel was able to show us homes immediately. Not quite knowing what to expect while looking for a home and putting an offer in, I couldn't have asked for a better experience or better realtor. It wasn't until we began looking at houses with Joel that I realized how important having a knowledgable realtor is. I've realized realtor's do SO much more than just show homes. While looking at homes we had questions such as, how much it might cost to add a few windows to a room or knock out a wall and Joel was able to give accurate answers. Joel is EXTREMELY knowledgable on all things related to homes and the ENTIRE home buying process. He was extremely responsive to all of our many questions, via email, telephone and even text messages. He was even available well into the evenings on many occasions to accommodate our schedules and keep the process moving along. Joel didn't just show us homes. Due to his extensive background with building homes, he was able to expertly point out "shotty" work in homes and things that may be of concern. (Very helpful!) Joel was never pushy and always straightforward and honest. When we closed on our new home part of me was sad that I wouldn't be in contact with Joel on daily basis! Joel is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! We had MANY MANY questions throughout this home buying process and Joel had the answers or knew where to find them (more often he just knew the answer). He made the whole process a breeze from start to finish (even when we wanted to change our closing date). I would and will recommend Joel to everyone I know buying or selling a home. 5 stars isn't enough for this FABULOUS REALTOR!! Thank you Joel for helping us find our "forever home". :)

Joel was tremendously integral in our entire home purchase process…
Joel was tremendously integral in our entire home purchase process... From finding the right space (even pointing out specific building construction differences to be aware of), to negotiating home remedy issues, to finally walking us through our final closing. Joel's communication of every step and possible hiccup along the way was incredible, and always helped us make our best decisions because we were so informed. Although we were one of many, we felt as if we were Joel's most important clients. Thank you, Joel, for your professionalism, honesty and looking out for our best interests!
We couldn’t be more pleased with Joel
We couldn't be more pleased with Joel as he walked us through our first time as sellers. We of course had the nerves, questions and frustrations many experience but he was always calm, knowledgable, prompt and courteous. We were also pleased with the attention our home received with numerous showings, marketing strategies and were able to get close to our asking price. We would highly recommend Joel and definitely would use his services again.
We absolutely loved working with Joel!
We absolutely loved working with Joel! We appreciated his candor and excellent communication throughout both the buying and selling process. His knowledge and respect in his field is unbeatable. He takes time to build trust with his clients that made us certain he always had our best interests in mind at every stage.

I would highly recommend Joel for any real estate venture you're considering!

Joel is a true professional. I would not only recommend Joel, I would insist to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home to talk to Joel. Without question, Joel consistently puts the clients best interests above all.
We purchased a home from out of state
We purchased a home from out of state so it was important to have a realtor who was knowledgeable about the area, responsive, understood what we were looking for and was willing to view homes on our behalf in a timely manner – Joel was all of these things and was easy and fun to work with. It took a couple months to find something but Joel remained ever patient and present. We highly recommend his services.
We could not have been happier
We could not have been happier working with Joel. He took the time to not only learn about our wants and needs in a new home, but also to learn about us as a couple, and understand our personalities. This made for a smooth and enjoyable search. Joel makes himself available to you, and is willing to answer or find an answer to any question about the home buying and renovating experience. I could not recommend him enough!
My wife and I relocated to Ohio
My wife and I relocated to Ohio for my job and in search for a home I found Joel on Zillow. Joel is a true professional in the business and more than just an "Agent." I would highly recommend Joel as he was extremely helpful and easy to do business with. He was very trustworthy and made my wife and I feel very comfortable buying a home being we were first-time home buyers. We had a fantastic experience working with Joel and can't thank him enough!
Joel did an amazing job selling my home
Joel did an amazing job selling my home. I had never sold a home and he made the entire process simple and smooth for me. Any question I had he had a response almost immediately. He kept me informed every step of the way. He knew the area I was located in very well and helped price my home accordingly. He is very straightforward and honest. When I received an offer on my home he notified me immediately and walked me through the process helping me make an informed decision and in the end negotiating so well I got my asking price! I would recommend him to anyone. He is now helping me find my next home.
